Project Overview

1. Description of Our Community

Daxi Elementary School is located in Taiwan, a small village in the west of Dacun Township, Changhua County. Most of the residents are mainly agricultural, and the cash crops are mainly grapes. Some farmers grow rice. The social and economic status of the community residents is not high. 40% are vulnerable children. Omura grapes are famous in Taiwan and are produced twice a year, mostly for consumption rather than wine making. Also nearby is the maxxis tire company, a world-renowned tire manufacturer. Most of the residents believe in Taoism. There are temples in every village. Temples are the center of people’s beliefs here. In addition to being spiritual sustenance, they also have the function of education and are closely related to life.

2. Summary of Our Project

Wutong Palace is a temple in the Daxiguo Primary School district. It has a history of nearly 360 years. It is an ancient temple. It mainly pays the emperor Wuxian. It is a local religious center and is closely related to people's lives. Frequently, I organize many art and cultural activities, such as student art exhibitions and music performances, and I have more contacts. I have discovered the artistic beauty of Wutong Palace, such as: the art of architecture, the art of mythology, the art of music, and the art of religious ritual activities. It is worthwhile Inheritance and understanding led to the birth of this plan, hoping to let more local people recognize the beauty of temple art through online blogging, and also hope to introduce it to the world, so that the world can see the beauty of Wutong Palace. The works are divided into six units, including the understanding of Wutong Palace, the beauty of mythology, the beauty of mythology, the beauty of religious activities, the beauty of modern art and special information, and a contextual introduction to the beauty of Wutong Palace.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome

In making this program, we encountered the following difficulties: 1. We are not an English-speaking country, so the expression and writing in English cannot be very smooth. 2. Find common time to implement the program, whether it's interviews or discussions with people in the community. 3. Web page production, not skilled. way to overcome 1. Translate by google, and then ask an English-specialized teacher to proofread the manuscript. 2. The interviews with the community take advantage of the holidays and make an appointment in advance, and use the lunch break for discussions. 3. Please ask the teacher to teach you the production of the webpage first, and then ask the expert teacher for assistance when you encounter problems.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

through this program 1. Let community residents and students better understand the characteristics, cultural implications and artistic beauty of local temples. 2. Let people all over the world know the beauty of Wutong Palace through the Internet.

6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?

my CyberFair project addresses the following (1) Language study areas: After the interview, it is necessary to organize the interview transcripts, summarize the conclusions and arrange the results. These works just apply the four levels of reading comprehension (information extraction, inferring information, interpretive integration, and comparative assessment) that we have learned in Mandarin class. (2) Mathematics field of study: The concepts of plane shape, three-dimensional shape, area and volume learned in mathematics classes help us better understand the scale and appearance of the Wutong Palace. (3) Social learning areas: When reading historical materials, seeing Zheng Chenggong, the king of Yanping County, who appeared in social textbooks, made us feel that the characters in the textbooks actually left records in Taiwan. In addition, it also made us more interested in social courses. (4) Fields of nature and life science and technology: Through this event, we not only have the opportunity to actually operate technological products to conduct research and research, but also allow us to rethink these technological products to bring not only the gameplay, but also the convenience of assisting investigation and research. (5) Arts and Humanities areas of study: Many symbolic images and designs with both religious meaning and aesthetics really amaze our students. (6)Through group study, students can express and respect the opinions of others. (7)Through online learning, we can see more different viewpoints and viewpoints, and broaden students' horizons. Traditional teaching cannot achieve this effect.

Project Elements

1) What information tools & technologies did you used to complete your CyberFair project?

1. Online community used (1) We most often use facebook to interact with others on the Internet, because of its convenience, high interactivity, and quick access to information and feedback. (2) Line community, group discussions often use line groups, and are not limited by time and space during research. 2. Use of hardware equipment (1) Computers are used to process documents. (2) ipad, it is very convenient to send photos and make records during interviews. (3) Cameras, to record images. (4) Video recorder, which is very convenient to record images and sounds, whether it is people, activities or architectural features. (5) Recording pen. Obtain the consent of the interviewer during the interview, record it, and then organize it into data.

2) In what ways did you act as "ambassadors" and spokespersons for your CyberFair project both on-line and in person.

1. Through our research, arouse people's attention and cherish the local arts and humanities. We found that the Wutong Palace in our hometown has a long history and has the beauty of architecture, mythology, and gods, but it is often ignored by residents. It is a pity, so through research and sorting, community residents can better understand Wutong Palace. 2. Spread the beauty of Wutong Palace's arts and humanities through the Internet: Through our website introduction, I hope the world can see the beauty of Wutong Palace's humanities, arts and activities through the window of the website, so that the world can see us, and also through the website can communicate with us. People who are interested in this topic, discuss and share, let us go out of the world.

1. Through the research process and interviews and photography exhibition activities, We cherish the culture of my hometown and have a deeper understanding of the temples in my hometown. 2. Through interviews and contacts with local people, residents can better understand the development and current situation of local primary schools, and let residents care about schools. 3. Spread through the Internet, let more people see the beauty of the temple's humanities, arts and activities. Share over the web. Let more people who care about local affairs care about Wutong Palace and schools. And share our case studies. 5.Establish a relationship of integrity and trust with local people.
